iv had a vistaprint website over 4 years and its paid for itself 100s of times over . i read about their websites on a diffrent forum a sheffield windie wrote they were good , easy to set up if you are a dummy , cheap as chips -- that was good enough for me!

what i like is that you edit the content yourself,so you can change it often as i feel fit, whereas you use a web designer itll be when he wants to .

i think i pay about 8 quid a month for mine which is 3 pages , i bleve its a fiver if you only have 1 page

though...it may be a while yet...I dont know where I get these ideas from:rolleyes:of course when I pick up the phone I will add an irish charm to my voice and that good ole silver tongue...

Wordpress is definitely an easy-to-use option and some templates (even the free ones) look really good.

 

There's also sites like http://www.wix.com/ which can be alright.

 

As boarcity said, as well - vistaprint is a very good option!

Trouble is a lot of web creator packages available you can get with hosting they tend to be very limited to what you can actually do regarding layouts etc. Most importantly are generally very restrictive for search engine optimisation. Out of all of them I would say wordpress is probably the best to build a site.

I use Yola.com. I like that I have control over the content and can change it as often as I like. It cost £17 a year for the bronze package.

one place to avoid is gettin a website with yell . a windie i know went with them and it cost a fortune due to trickery , he then found he couldnt cancel easily and when he eventually did they held on to his name .
